The lake is located in a remote area and has no permanent settlements along its banks. It is famous as the geographical center of Russia. The spot is marked by a 7-metre monument erected in August 1992. Nearby is an even higher cross dedicated to St. Sergius of Radonezh.
Lake Vivi is located on the southern limit of the Putorana Massif, in the zone where it overlaps with the Syverma Plateau. It is a typical river lake, with the Vivi River, a tributary of the Lower Tunguska, flowing out of it from its southern end. Lake Vivi is roughly stretching from north to south and while its length is ca. 86 kilometres (53 mi), its width does not exceed 5 kilometres (3.1 mi).
